The Victory

I received a letter from a friend this morning and I was faced with whether to brush it aside with a quick answer with little detail or delve deeper into the truth. As I prayed, God continued to bring truth to my mind and 1 john 2 for the second time this week. "The one who keeps Gods word is the person in whom we see God's mature love. This is the only way to be sure we're in God. Anyone who claims to be intimate with God ought to live the same kind of life Jesus lived." As I continued to read a little further down it said this: "It's the person who loves his brother and sister who dwells in God's light and doesn't block the light from others. But whoever hates is still in the dark, stumbles around in the dark, doesn't know which end is up, blinded by the darkness."
I want God to reveal truth to me and that is what I've been praying for everyday. Is He telling me to now reveal truth, truth about how I feel, to someone else? Will this bring God's light to them? If I hide from this will it mean that there will be darkness in someway? Will that darkness show itself in roots of pride, bitterness, anger, fear, or jealousy?
I don't have the answer. I just know that God is asking me to speak truth. I was encouraged to read along in the chapter where it says: "God's word is steady in you Your fellowship with God enables you to gain a victory over the evil one." I like the sound of that, I like the promise of victory over the evil one. God has already gained victory and it is already mine if I accept it.
Jesus, Say That Again, victory is yours!
